Following the success of previous Critical Writing workshops, a new edition takes place in 2018, running in tandem with the Academy. Facilitated by Jennifer Lucy Allan, the workshop focuses on specific aspects – language, style, and focus – of writing as a craft. Emerging writers and critics are brought together to deliberate the different critical modes we can use to write about, describe, and discuss art, theory, sound, and music while thinking about how to package ideas. The writers – covering the conference, performances, and other events during the Academy – will interview participating artists and theorists and engage with new conceptions of learning that focus on artistic practice as a means to explore new ideas.
The application for the Critical Writing Workshop 2018 is now closed.
The workshop is a co-production of Sonic Acts & Paradiso and part of Re-Imagine Europe, co-funded by the Creative Europe programme of the European Union.
